William Kentridge

South African | 1955 -


William Kentridge was born in Johannesburg, where he continues to live and work today. He earned a B.A. in politics and African studies in 1976 from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. From 1976 to 1978 Kentridge studied fine art at the Johannesburg Art Foundation, where he later taught printmaking, and during 1981-82 he completed a course in mime and theatre at L'Ecole Jacques LeCoq in Paris.

William Kentridge moved between film, drawing and theatre throughout his career, with recent projects frequently integrating elements from all these media and more. William Kentridge is best known for his charcoal drawing stop-frame animations.

Since his participation in Dokumenta X in Kassel in 1997, solo shows of Kentridge's work have been shown in many museums and galleries around the world. He has won various awards and is one of South Africa's most well known artists.
